Brake Disc Skimming is the process of skimming over the top of the brake discs to restore the disc’s surface. Skimming is the affordable way to restore your existing brake disc to maximise its lifespan before a full brake disc replacement is required.
The benefits include reducing/removing vibration issues within the brakes. It will also remove rust and corrosion from the disc, stopping the brake system from squeaking.
With the skimming process, the disc is restored to factory specification, bringing the vehicle back to the handling and performance that you have come to expect from your vehicle. Also, skimming saves you money in the short and longer-term.

How does brake disc skimming work?
We are able to undertake brake disc skimming at our garage in Batley.
The process of brake disc skimming works by removing all the wheels and taking measurements to the brake disc and brake hub. This allows the technicians to check for wear and tear and any defects that might be present on the parts. The disc is then resurfaced to remove any inconsistencies and take the disc back to an even surface.
Brake discs can be skimmed more than once within their lifespan. A minimum standard is required for brake discs to be roadworthy and legal. Making skimming an affordable alternative for some clients.
